Indices Daily Chart

From bullish to caution. This is the current phase the major indices have recently switched to. It’s important, because it lets us take a careful and watchful stance, while we try to anticipate what may happen next.

It also gives us a clearer parameter of when to look at the market with our bull eyes or our bear eyes.

Let me explain the rules of a caution phase to make sure we’re all on the same page.

The 50-day moving average (DMA) must be above the 200-DMA. The symbol price must be under the 50-DMA and above the 200-DMA.

All the charts above are in a caution phases. IWM, while in a caution phase, is in an unconfirmed caution phase because in this case, we would want to see 2 daily closes over the 200-DMA after it had traded below it.

If you take a look at the QQQs you can see that ever since we broke below the 50-DMA we are still sitting close by it but not trading above it.

On Friday, while both the DIA and the SPY closed green, they still have ways to go before they get back to the 50-DMA

So, while Friday was constructive, the markets still needs to do more to convince the bulls. And should we roll over this week, then we can assume that last weeks bounce was nothing more than a dead cat.

SPY 320 support Resistance at 331

IWM Support 142. 143 pivotal 150 resistance

DIA 265 support 275 resistance

QQQ 260 key support. Resistance 273

KRE (Regional Banks) Inside day. 33.50 support. Better through 35

SMH (Semiconductors) 16.60 support 170 Resistance

IYT (Transportation) 193 support. Needs to clear 202

IBB (Biotechnology) Over 135 looks great

XRT (Retail) Inside day has to clear 50
